SEA Change is now accepting applications for its signature cohort. Up to 15 organizations will have support from industry experts and mentors, along with free virtual training as a part of the program. Eligible organizations can be non-profit or for-profit businesses, spanning idea-stage ventures to currently operating social enterprises.
The program is designed to help social entrepreneurs develop sustainability, determine their social impact, and integrate into their local entrepreneurial ecosystem. The deadline to apply for the fully virtual Signature Cohort is April 1. The virtual cohort is available for entrepreneurs anywhere and sessions will run weekly from May 9 to September 14.
SEA Change employs a data-proven, 14-module curriculum with solo mentorship and weekly education cohort sessions taught by industry experts to help entrepreneurs with their business development. The goal is for participants to develop business plans that combine traditional financial goals alongside measurable social impact.
Teams that progress the furthest, fastest will pitch to a team of investors at the close of the program.
SEA Change is also looking for business subject matter experts in module content areas to be facilitators of the program. As a facilitator or mentor, volunteers will help participants by leading discussions on course content and supporting entrepreneurs during the program.
